New England has averaged a league-best 33 points per game at home—and with Tom Brady at the helm, that doesn't look to change.
In those six home games, the Patriots have beaten the likes of Cincinnati, Buffalo, Baltimore, Minnesota, Indianapolis and Rex Ryan's New York Jets. Each of those teams, amazingly enough, have given up a combined average of 326 total yards per game— which would be good enough for 11th-best in the entire NFL.
The Patriots have faced some of the top offenses in the entire league at home this season, and have managed to outscore their opponents 33-21 at home this year. Scary stuff, without question.
The Packers, on the other hand, are 3-4 on the road this season. However, Green Bay has actually kept their opponents in check, outscoring the opposition 117 to 86 on the road.
Green Bay's 10th-ranked overall defense will have their work cut out for them this week in practice, as they attempt to slow down the New England freight train guided by Bill Belichik.
The Packers rank third in the league in interceptions (18), and New England ranks second in the league interception give-aways (5). Something's got to give, right? Exactly.
With All-Pros Tramon Williams and Charles Woodson more than likely guarding Wes Welker and Deion Branch, the Packers will have the upper hand in the pure talent department. With the addition of rain and snow showers, the passing game of the Patriots will be limited as well.
Matchup to watch: Tom Brady vs. Charles Woodson
The league's MVP leader countering the leauge's most dominant cornerback over the last 10 years. If that isn't entertainment, then I don't know what is.
